Funding

When you apply for financial aid, the UC Student Financial Aid Office will consider you for all aid sources.
We will first look at scholarship and grant eligibility based on merit or need. Self-help sources such as work-study and loans will next be assessed for awarding.
Some students are eligible for all aid types while others are eligible only for loans. Because some aid programs are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis, apply for aid as soon after January 1 of each year as possible for priority consideration for limited funding sources.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
